Once again, we find ourselves happy and fulfilled with the sweet sate of a weekend of yummy dancing– Time for thanks and celebration!
Thanks first: To all who came and worked and supported–we love you and couldn’t do it without you (literally). THANK YOU! If you’re into looking for specific thank-yous, you’re a bit late… We got out the personals, hugs & tears on Sunday.
If you’re still needing a personal thanks because you weren’t there yesterday, PM us. We’ll get one to you, & a hug too.
SOswing Convention returns FULL FORCE with Episode 4, including batches of amazing pros, WSDC comps, & 24-hour-a-day non-stop FUN.
SO Big Events Calendar!
Time to plan the rest of your Fall!
Bridgetown Swing, 9/24-9/27
Our friends up in Portland have consistently fun, well-run events. We love them and we love their fair (and weird) city! BTS is a well-established very fun event. We make it our habit NOT to miss it. You should do the same.
Dave Kahn’s selling tickets! Save a little money & join the table with all your friends! Call/text: 541-324-7981
Southern Oregon Music Festival, 10/2-10/4, with Leify Green & Danny Maika on 10/3
This is going to be AMAZING!
This Festival has been going on for better than 25 years, with the focus on live music. The last few they’re really started to cater to dancers, and this year, even more, with an extra (proper) focus on WCS! They also support SOswing directly–our Premiere Sponsor–and additionally, they have a program to get musical instruments in our local schools. A great event, and a great organization.
Note: Because of the expense it takes to bring in talent like this, SOswing has been participating in helping to raise and additional $1K to help SOMF with pay the tab–and WE’VE DONE IT! Thanks to the enthusiasm of Donn Knokey, who’s successfully organized 50/50 raffles at the Evergreen Ballroom, the Firehouse and Candela studios!

Mountain Magic, 11/5-11/8
We love this event. Relatively nearby in S. Lake Tahoe, it’s about 4.5 hrs away from SO, about the same distance of Portland. WCS pro Michelle Kinkaid has been hosting this event for 17 years! She’s got it down to a sweet science and tons of fun. The hotel is great, including the best indoor pool of any convention. Just confirmed, Dave Kahn will be offering his dancers’ fitness workshop, the UnDiet at this event!
S2S, for those soon-to-be-in-the-know, is Sea to Sky, one of Seattle’s premiere WCS events, hosted by our friends, WCS pro Michael Kielbasa and Cheryl Lyons. Good people with tons of experience and connections to the WCS community. This event never fails to satisfy, and it’s extra-cool that it’s in Seattle, one of our favorite towns.
